While the Bolt electric will be remembered as the seminal moment that brought electric cars into democratization, the story is more likely to be remembered with the second model, which brought the G.M. Super Cruise system to the humble Chevy.
Incidentally, the Super Cruise package ($2,200), which is an option on 2022 Bolt EUV Premier trim, makes the 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV the first Chevrolet model to offer GMs awesome semi-autonomous system. The hands-free highway-driving assist feature of the Super Cruise system will be available as an available option on a second Bolt derivative, which is the first time that is appeared on a GM product wearing a Chevy badge.
The 2023 Chevy Bolt EUV is also able to charge at DC speed, which Chevy says will deliver up to 95 miles of range in as little as 30 minutes. General Motors says that the 65-kWh Bolt EVs battery pack will deliver 259 miles of range per charge, and that the slightly heavier Bolt EUV will deliver 250 miles — basically the same as the model from this current year.
The maximum range for Chevy Bolt EUV is about 400 kilometers, a bit lower than Bolt EV, which weighs 45 kg less. Compared with the Chevy Bolt hatchback, the Bolt EUV is around 18 cm longer, with nearly eight more centimetres between its front and rear wheels. Surprisingly, cargo volume in the Chevy Bolt hatchback, either with the rear seats up or folded down, is almost identical to that of the smaller Bolt.
The 2023 Chevy Bolt EUV is longer, wider, and taller than Bolt EVs, and its rear seats are a beneficiary of this added room, with rear-seat legroom increasing more than three inches. The two 2022 Bolt models share the same front legroom, while the Bolt EV actually has more headroom across both rows. The 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUVs single electric motor connected to the front wheels produces 200 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque, and its 65-kWh battery offers a range estimated at 247 miles on batteries alone for the Bolt EUV, and 259 miles for the regular Bolt EV.
The Bolt EUVs single electric motor, left, drives the front wheels, producing 200 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque. The 2017 Bolt EV really feels like a vehicle that can take the lead in this space; the cars range of 238 miles on its 60-kWh battery is better than Teslas 210-mile range estimate for its 60-kWh Model S (though 75-, 90-, and 100-kWh options offer better estimates than the Bolt), and its price is less than half that of the lower-specced Tesla. Chevy said it would introduce a low-cost, long-range EV to market — and it has, in the 2017 Bolt EV.
